Theresa Christina Leite, beloved wife, mother, gram, and great-gram passed from this world into the perpetual light of Christ on Sunday, October 11, 2020. Theresa was born in Lindsey, Ohio on July 26 1929. She grew up helping her parents and six siblings run a 120 acre farm, however she was known to avoid the long difficult hours of work, by hiding in the cherry trees and reading books. She met Robert C. Leite through mutual friends and they were married in 1954. They moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1963 with two sons, Christopher (Nancy, Ann Arbor) and Timothy (Karen, Houston, Texas) and two daughters, Linda (Robert Webb, Clinton, MI) and Lisa. In Ann Arbor, they experienced the sadness in the loss of their daughter Lisa at three years old. They also experienced the joy of two more sons, Mathew (Tammy, Northville, MI) and Joel (Jennifer, Syracuse, NY). Theresa loved talking with family, friends, and neighbors, gardening, running, biking, and traveling. She is pre-deceased by her parents, her husband, Bob (dec. Oct 11, 1994), and all of her siblings. She leaves behind 5 children, 10 grand children: Peter (Brook), John, Jacob (Kate), Katie, Nathaniel, Alexis, Braden, Lauren, Robert, and Nicholas, and 3 great grandchildren: Jack, Henry, and Benjamin. Visitation will be on Thursday from 4-8pm at Muehlig, Funeral Chapel, followed by a Mass of Christian burial on Friday at 10:00 am at St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Ann Arbor, MI, with Father Bill Ashbaugh as Celebrant . In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Thomas Church in Ann Arbor.

Theresa was a client, but so much more. In business people usually contact you when they need something. Theresa was that rare person who took the time to stopby just to say hi and see how we were doing. I enjoyed her impromptu visits and chatting with her about grandchildren and gardening. I recall how excited she was when she became a great grandmother! Her kindness and joy brightened up my work day, and I will greatly miss those visits. Peace to her cherished family.

I knew Mrs. Leite during the early 1980’s as I spent countless hours watching movies (on Betamax) with Matt at their house. I have nothing but fond memories of the hospitality and kindness she showed me. I may not have seen her in decades, but her memory will be with me always. My thoughts are with you in this time of grief.
